Temple Grandin paints a picture of a young woman’s perseverance and determination while struggling with the isolating challenges of autism at a time when it was still quite unknown. The HBO original film chronicles Temple’s early diagnosis; her turbulent growth and development during her school years; the enduring support she received from her mother (Ormond), aunt (O’Hara) and her science teacher (Strathairn); and her emergence as a woman with an innate sensitivity and understanding of animal behaviour.

Undaunted by education, social and professional roadblocks, Grandin turned her unique talent into a behavioural tool that revolutionized the cattle industry and laid the groundwork for her successful career as an author, lecturer and pioneering advocate for autism and autism spectrum disorder education.

Tickets can be collected 30 mins before the screening time at the GV VivoCity. SFS and MINDS reserves the right to release uncollected tickets to walk-in members who do not have a ticket after the start of the screening.

This screening was made possible with the support of HBO.


About MINDS Film Festival

The MINDS Film Festival is back again!

The community of Persons with Intellectual Disabilities (PWID) continue to grow and require opportunities to advance their minds and be empowered to live with hope.

While MINDS expands its efforts to empower them with services that cater to their different life stages through a holistic “whole-person” approach, much more can be done to generate greater awareness to the public and involve them in interacting with PWIDs.

MINDS and Singapore Film Society have come together again for the second year after resounding success from last year’s inaugural film festival, to continue its outreach to the public to not just promote social inclusion, but to advocate the advancement of PWIDs’ contributions to society.

This year, we are featuring six films from five countries - China, Malaysia, Sweden, UK and USA. The festival will open with Swedish film THE IMPORTANCE OF TYING YOUR SHOES, with director Lena Koppel in Singapore to present her film. Director Tunku Mona Riza and Producer Ku Mohamad Haris will also be in Singapore to present their film - REDHA.
